Blued Trees Symphony for Florida
Organized by: Anita Stewart
EVENT DATE Oct 22, 2016
We want to #StopSabalTrail pipeline, a natural gas pipeline that will threaten the lands, waters (including aquifers, watersheds, rivers, springs, ponds, wetlands), our environment and flora & fauna in three states. Over 160 eminent domain lawsuits have been filed. Citizens' properties are being seized to complete this project. Most of the people that live closest to the pipeline are not even aware that it is being installed.
Natural Gas would be transported on commuter trains and the entire system will consist of staging areas, compressor stations and areas to process and export the natural gas. One of the latter is close to a nuclear power plant. This puts lives in danger. The human impact cannot even be estimated at this time and could occur from mistakes such as work hazards, derailments and possible explosions.
We are citizens that have come together to attempt stop/halt the pipeline by installing an art project called the Blued Trees Symphony created by Aviva Rahmani and managed in Florida by Anita Stewart. Our team of artists would be applying an activist art strategy created by Aviva Rahmani to leverage copyright and eminent domain law.
The money raised from this page will be go towards expenses for this very important work.
We don't have much time, perhaps weeks as Sabal Trail under Spectra and other parent Big Oil and Gas companies have already broken ground in three states: Alabama, Georgia and Florida. The pipes are being installed rapidly and in multiple locations throughout the three states right now. This pipeline is expected to be operational by May of 2017.
It is important to note that this pipeline has been APPROVED. There is no more asking nicely from elected representatives. They can't help us. Voting harder or wiser will not change what is happening now. We need to move forward in an attempt to save our future.
We all want the same things for our families. Clean lands, pure water and air, properties untainted by chemicals or gasses, an ability to farm, safety for our children, animals, plants and endangered species so they can all thrive. We want to leave the beauty of this region even better for the next generations.
Please consider giving. Give generously if you can. If you can't, every little bit helps. This is for our future. Those coming after us will be grateful. Our brothers and sisters who have had their properties seized will appreciate anything you can give towards this effort. We probably won't have a second chance to get this right. Thank you.
